By reprogramming your mind you have the power to transform everything

''Puerto Rico rises'', ''I do not remove myself'', and all these ways of inviting us to move forward we hear them daily. I do not doubt the power of these words, which certainly have the best intention to motivate and make us vibrate in another tune. But how do I do it? On one occasion, a challenge arose in my environment, which I will call my "creative and novel confrontation". Due to the stress of the day, weather complications, the electricity had gone out in the building where my office is located, no lunch and a full schedule of patients, another energetic challenge arrived that threatened to prevent me from attending to my patients in any way I could, and...

Transform your body through your mind

Since we spend so much of our lives thinking and living in the future - one of the main causes of anxiety - many are already making their summer plans and preparing to look their best and/or lose those pounds they set out to lose as a New Year's resolution. And it's a good thing many of us are taking care of our bodies! However, in consultation many confide in me that they feel frustrated with their results, as they notice that they achieve small goals only to then return to their original weight - or even gain even more weight, plus they understand that they don't gain control of their eating habits and lose the motivation that allowed them...

Importance of healthy self-esteem.

Reflecting on what all the people who honor me with their vote of confidence as their mental health professional share, I have come to the conclusion that we all need to strengthen our self-esteem or sense of self-worth, and that therein lies the key to happiness and what we call full well-being in life. In analyzing the problems that my patients present, almost all of them have their origin in low self-esteem. Sometimes it happens because of events in childhood, sometimes because of situations in youth or adulthood, that mark us and that we interpret in such a way that makes us feel insecure, undervalued, unloved. Clearly, when we live like this, what we feel is loneliness, anxiety and depression....

Because suicide is preventable.

We all find it difficult to talk about suicide because I guess in addition to the grotesque images that come to mind of how the person lost their life, it also presupposes a sense of guilt on a collective and individual level that highlights how we are failing as a society, to such an extent that life is unsustainable for that person. But beyond that, I personally think it is also about making us vulnerable that it can also happen to us and makes us aware of our own internal struggle, and at times, moments where - perhaps on a smaller or larger scale - we have also pondered the idea that life is unsustainable as we know it, or...

Get organized by setting goals.

Summer is here! For many, it's a reason to rejoice because they will take a few days off from work, a planned trip with their family, or they can simply have some time off from the obligations that come with supporting their children in their schoolwork. For others, it can be a stressful time, as it also involves figuring out what to do with their children now that the school semester has come to an end. And just as our children are expected to grow and mature to welcome the next school year in August, it is worth asking yourself how you have grown, how you have transformed your life in a positive way in these first six months of...
